Expectations Met

Allen A. Hale, Amazon
29 June 2015
  • Summary: I bought the 3 TB to supplement my previous 2 TB. My vote of confidence in Buffalo products was rewarded and validated - I plugged the 3 TB into the outlet and into the computer - up and running with no problem!

Bad Company.

Brandon M., Newegg
26 April 2015
  • Summary: Wont buy another Buffalo Product again. I understand that things sometimes go bad, but to ignore your warranty obligations is how you lose customers. like me. Since this purchase ive bought 3 more external 3tbs and about a dozen SSD's. Guess how many were Buffalo products?
  • Pros: Drive did everything as advertised. Was very happy with the product. If not for Buffalo Customer Service, i wouldve given it 4 stars.
  • Cons: The drive stopped working after a few months. not a big deal to me. I tried numerous times to contact customer service to try and get warranty service. Never heard back once. I bet if i were to write them after the product was out of warranty though, theyd snap a reply right back and tell me toug...

Sometimes they are just bad

Eric H., Newegg
9 April 2015
  • Summary: Sometimes units are just bad, not necessarily all of them will be. But since this will be used for long term/deep storage backup.. it makes me too nervous for a replacement. Good on Newegg for accepting my refund request with no arguing.
  • Pros: Good price. Simple Instructions. USB 3.0/SS
  • Cons: Dead on arrival. No lights, no noise. Volt meter says 12V power supply "wall-wart" is good.

In reply to John M.

Jeffrey R., Newegg

  • Summary: I'm not sure by what you mean "A Buffalo Drive inside" ... Buffalo doesn't actually manufacture hard drives. They make the external units . They use drives from Seagate , Western Digital , or Toshiba , depending on who gives them the best discounts for buying in bulk and also gives good performance...
  • Pros: Has been rock steady for me , despite the fact that I have it sitting on the floor next to my desk and have kicked it several times.
  • Cons: Their instructions can actually be confusing to new users . Anyone with any tech savvy will probably do as I did and just repartition it and reformat it from within Windows and dump the tools they provide.

MAC USERS BEWARE!

Jared Jones, Amazon
11 March 2015
  • Summary: The drive itself is great! The look is stylish and clean. File transfers were quite fast! The issue is the buffalo drive does not know how to handle the sleep/wake functions of a Mac. I contacted Buffalo tech support about this and their reply was "do not put your Mac into sleep mode".

No complaints, Faster Than my Samsunmg D3 Station

Adam A., Newegg
5 March 2015
  • Summary: I would recommend it to other people. I think the price of the drive is starting to get out-dated in comparison to many other options, but I am sure the smaller form factor and higher speed attributes to the higher cost variance.
  • Pros: The case was smaller than I expected. I recently bought a Samsung D3 Station and expected it to be about the same size, but the BUFFALO (HD-LC2.0U3) was more compact. The read/write speed was about 15% higher than my D3 Station too, but that was not a true concern, because I use them as external ...
  • Cons: I didn't really have any cons with this item. It has been a couple months, with no issues, so for me, no complaints.

  • Summary: I am hesitant to buy one if it does not have a buffalo disk in it. Do NOT want WD for sure; too many problems in the past and Hitatchi ehhhhh maybe. But, if it says a BUFFALO, then that is what I want inside. Like trying to sell me a porsche when I know its a yugo inside. What is up with that?
  • Pros: na
